This post is a bit overdue but Tulum isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and thank god for that.  But it’s quickly becoming more and more popular due to a huge influx of bloggers heading to this steamy paradise. And after experiencing this magical wonderland of boutique hotels and delicious jungle eateries I now know why. There are so many different ways you can spend your time in Tulum…from sipping delicious cocktails and relaxing all day to filling your days with action packed adventure. If your interested in all-inclusive over sized resorts this isn’t your place. If you want a unique bohemian adventure filled with delicious food, tropical jungles and pristine beaches around every corner then this is your spot. We stayed at Coqui Coqui perfumeria, visited Chitzen Itza, the Tulum Ruins, loads of cenotes and ate our way through town. Don’t miss a day trip to Valladolid if you have time (historic and colorful). We rented bikes at Yoga Shala and had a spectacular day feeling the wind in our hair while we explored paradise.

Mes Demoiselles Lars sweater  , 6397 Jeans, Jennifer zeuner Lariats, shoes Zara, tank Jcrew
This sweater has quickly become one of my favorite throw on pieces I’ve purchased. It’s easy, cozy and adds a hint of gold glimmer to the simplest of outfits. Oddly enough it was one of those things I just wasn’t sure about… Wasn’t love at first sight you could say. But once we got to know each other we have really fallen in love. Looking forward to pairing it with little strappy holiday dresses and leather pants. These jeans are one of my favorite fits and I altered them myself to fit better with high heels by cutting them a bit at the ankle. Silky tank is a great basic from jcrew and the bag was purchased on a recent trip to Coqui Coqui. 

Made-well

   
    
    
     

   
 
Skirt Madewell, top French Connection, clutch DKNY, shoes Louboutin, trench coat Club Monaco

Anytime I have a wedding to attend all I ever want to wear is white… oddly enough. But since that is frowned upon the next best thing is an all black ensemble. I can already tell this skirt is going to be on high rotation this fall and winter based on how flattering it fits. Can’t wait to wear it with chunky sweaters and OTK suede boots. The trench coat is probably one of my favorite purchases this season and it feel insanely expensive (without the hefty price tag). 

   
    
   
   

   
Top reformation, shorts Zara, shoes Zara, bag Chila bags, hat Brixton

Outdoor activities call for festival attire, weather permitting. This top has been one of my favorites, easy and simple. The Reformation is my go to shop for high quality, classic pieces. I love the green suede shorts for fall, and can’t wait to pair them with a chunky knit. I finally scored the gladiator sandals on eBay because they sold out online before I could get my finances in order. Chila Bags are handmade in Columbia and I wish I could buy 5 more in different colors… Vacation necessity. 

 

 

Nightgown 

   
    
    
   

Free people Bleaker bucket bag, Zara Crochet dress, toga pulla Buckle boots

I can’t believe I almost returned what has turned out to be one of my favorite dresses of all time. I can’t wait to pair it with a chunky cardigan this fall or a pair of OTK boots. The crochet shoulder detail is absolutely perfect and the relaxed silhouette makes it perfect for just about any figure. It’s literally so comfortable it could double as a nightgown.  I’ve searched high and low for a great bucket bag and was pleasantly surprised when I found a reasonably priced one that looks and feels like real leather. Loved it so much I had to buy it in the tan color too! 

Ladylike

   
    

   

  

 Top Zara  , skirt Jcrew, bag Givenchy, scarf Vintage , sandals Sam Edelman 

I’ve had some serious French girl inspiration lately… From air drying hair to ladylike lace tops and skirts. I found this fantastic skirt on eBay for a bargain ($10). I had to alter it a bit by moving buttons but in the end it was everything I had hoped for. Ordering from Zara can be a bit of a hit or miss situation, but lately it’s been a huge hit. This lace top was surprisingly expensive looking in person.  Paired with my timeless Givenchy (scarf from a vintage store in Portland for $1) and a pair of sandals I couldn’t have felt any more feminine and ladylike.
